​With the rise of the World Wide Web, Google, and ubiquitous, 24-hour
access to information in a variety of modes, many people predicted the
demise of libraries. However, libraries continue to maintain a vital role
in the emerging digital university. Librarians have proven to be insightful
leaders, putting into place the kinds of technologies
needed for teaching, learning, and research. They are often among the early
adopters of new technologies in their institutions. *Most academic work in
the digital environment is done by teams, not by individuals working alone.
In partnership with faculty, students, staff, and their communities,
librarians will continue to have a strong role in the digital university​.*
